The auction will feature equipment donated by audio-equipment manufacturers, recording companies, and audiophiles and music-lovers worldwide. Proceeds will go to relief organizations chosen by the donors, unless individual donors elect to have the winning bidder choose the recipient.
Audio Asylum last sponsored a benefit auction following the events of 9/11/01. More than $200,000 was raised to benefit relief organizations.
"Given the scale of the destruction and loss of life caused by the tsunami, we hope to raise at least that much again with this auction," said audio industry veteran Ole Lund Christensen, co-organizer of the event, along with Bill Leebens.
